Under his protection and in his bed...
For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family... Yeah, birthdays suck.
Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister's reckless - and gorgeous - best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her...even if she objects.
The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers - and clothes - are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love...if they survive long enough to see it.

It has been years...
Fallon Wayland has been in love with her best friends brother since she was in high school, maybe longer. She kissed him on her 18th birthday and never saw him alone again. What is a girl to think?
Shane Roarke is upset that Fallon did not feel that she could call on him when she needed help. Being just a man, he did not know what his ignoring her did. He had no idea that every birthday she has ever had has been a disaster.
Her current birthday being the worst, of course. She has witnessed a murder. Been nearly killed, and then losing her job? Perfect. Now she has Shane saying he will protect her from harm. Who is going to protect her heart from him?
Shane has wanted Fallon since that ill fated kiss. He knows if he does not avoid her they will come together and combust. Sparks are nothing compared to what happened when they kissed!
Fallon needs saving from herself, and from the man who wants her dead. Is Shane the right man to show her that past problems can be kept there? Or will he damage what good she has earned up to now?
Such a great book with incredible suspense! I loved the characters, banter, secy bits and all. This was an all around good read.

Shane took sexy to a whole new level!!!
The sexual angst is so substantial, I feel as if I could reach into the air and feel it throughout the room. Amazing! And HOT!
Shane has to keep her safe from a gang leader she supposed to testify against but who will keep them safe from each other? Fallon and Shane were a match made in heaven, except they each were looking for the opposite of what they saw in each other. Shane took sexy to a whole new level. Ex-military turned personal security specialist. I had to turn the fan on while reading. I highly recommend this well written, super sexy and suspenseful Romance. You won't be sorry! If I could give more than five stars for this review I would.

This book was hot!!! Boy is Shane an alpha hero that talks dirty. Loved him. This book had humor, eat, passion, and suspense. Well rounded book. Poor Fallon she has the worst luck on her birthday, but this one takes the cake. She sees a murder and now her life is in danger. Shane her best friend's brother who she's had crush on decides to play her hero. Shane has been lusting after her since their explosive kiss. Now stuck together in a safe house the heat between them is going to reach a boiling point. When everything is said and done can these two have a future? I loved what Shane did for Fallon at the end of the book. There was also a hilarious spider scene.
